The problem with young children is they yell, hit, bite and have tantrums!
Do you think they came out of the womb that way? Or did they learn that from someone? Likely you see where this is going?
I wish I had read this article when my child was very young, however I am still going to use it now. Here is a link to the whole article. It is not that long and there are some reference materials you can see there.

Even just showing a smidgen of frustration or irritation was considered weak and childlike, Briggs observed.
Her first hint as to why no one showed anger was a strange sight on the beach. A mother was encouraging her young child to throw rocks at her and when he did, she playfully exclaimed “ouch”.
